Publisher's Summary

She’s a talented pastry chef - with a secret recipe for solving crimes…

WELCOME TO THE COOKIE HOUSE
Kate McGuire’s life was sweet in Manhattan before she lost her restaurant job and fiancé both. But sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles, and soon she finds herself starting from scratch in the island town of Coral Cay, Florida. It has everything she’s looking for: sunny beaches, friendly locals, and a Help Wanted sign in the bakery shop window. Once she convinces the shop’s crusty owner Sam Hepplewhite to hire her, Kate can’t tie on her apron fast enough. Little does she know that trouble, like warm dough, is on the rise. . . 

WHERE CRIMINALS GET THEIR JUST DESSERTS
Stewart Lord is a real estate developer with a taste for a different type of dough: the green kind. He knows that he could make a killing by purchasing the Cookie House from Sam, who flat-out refuses to sell. But when Stewart turns up the heat on Sam - then turns up dead after eating a fresh batch of Sam’s cinnamon rolls - all eyes focus on the town’s beloved bakery. When the police arrest Sam for murder, Kate must somehow prove that her curmudgeonly boss is innocent. Enlisting the help of a team of lovable locals, Kate sets out to catch the real culprit with his hand in the cookie jar…before someone else gets burned.

Pleasantly surprised

I wasn’t sure if I would like this book. I loved it! The characters, the twists and turns of the plot, the mystery that completely stumped me! I hope you plan to place more of Eve Calder’s books on Audible, and use the same narrator! The narrator, Christa Lewis was fantastic! I also loved no bad language and no torrid sex scenes !

Great Read

I really enjoyed the story and character development. I would definitely recommend you give this book a listen. The narrator Christa Lewis had me immersed in the story. I hope she will narrate the second book.

All around excellent read/listen!

I'm already in love with the Cookie House and I have only read, well listened, to one book! I so want to visit and check out all the shops in the downtown area. The characters are extremely well developed and so very realistic that they instantly feel like new friends. The plot line was very well developed and intriguing so you just have to keep reading, or listening as in my case. The narrator of the audio version is fabulous with giving each character a unique voice so that they feel even more real. I can't wait to read/listen to the next book in the series!

Feminism Grade: A++ FANTASTIC READ!

Absolutely loved it! And the twist at the end is unexpected! Also-this book is one of the few ones with an amazingly feminist message that is not told with exclamation points, but rather shown through its diverse cast and lack of stereotype use.
